into this race for the united states senate because like so many north dakota tans, i believe washington, d.c. was absolutely broken. it seemed like the politicians in that town believed that what was most important was their political party, what they believed was most important was their own private interests and the special interests. and somehow the interest of the people was left behind. and we needed change. two years ago congressman berg said he could go to washington, d.c. and end the gridlock and take away the partisanship and start solving problems. but when congressman berg got to washington, d.c., he voted 100% with his own political party. and i believe he voted against north dakota's interest. he voted for plan that cut $180 billion out of the farm bill including a 20% reduction in crop insurance. he voted for a plan that was, in fact, a plan that privatized and made our social security and our, um, medicare a private system. and i believe a lot of those votes did not reflect our values, and that's what got me in this race. >> moderator: thank you. representative berg, you may
